We’re A Small Family-Owned Orchard
S & J Mandarin Grove was started in April 2001, in the quiet Newcastle countryside of Placer County, California. With its warm days, cool nights, and decomposed granite soil, Placer County is an excellent location to grow quality produce, especially our sweet, seedless, organic Owari Satsuma mandarin oranges.

We’re all about family!
From fishing in the pond and evening walks, to helping out in the orchard and watching the geese and ducks, our family loves spending time out on the property and playing in the Mandarin Grove.
Our organic mandarin orchard provides not only the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, but a fabulous opportunity to meet new people who visit the orchard or visit our booth at the Sunday Sacramento Farmers’ Market!
